It is the birth place of Gandhiji. Preservation of monuments is good. We feel mesmerising. People are good and have equal respect for the temple.

I am lucky to visit this Kirti Mandir which is birth place of Mahatma Gandhi. It is very beautiful and well maintained as well. You feel peace of mind after visiting this place so if you are in Porbandar then must visit this place.

It is not a temple rather a big house which is extremely clean and peaceful. There is no entry fee & one needs to remove shoes before entering inside. Place gives you insight about bapu's life from child to youth.

Journey through narrow lanes of Porbandar takes you to the place where Mahatma Gandhi spent the best years of life. Kept in original state. Very peaceful surroundings.

EXCELLENT. A must visit place in Porbandar. However, since it is in old city, there is NO parking. Lot of roads around Kirti Mandir are one ways. The approach roads are very narrow. Take care. There is also a Suvienoer shop.

One of the best parking spots is right opposite Sudhama Temple. It's about 1.5 Km from Kirti Mandir.
